Moorings North

Testimonials 2017

HomeAway Property

Wonderful Thanksgiving

I will exhaust every positive adjective describing Moorings North and the hospitality shown by the Grills. Every detail was addressed - baby gates, outlet covers, a pack-and-play, games to a beautifully equipped bar area and extensive entertainment technology...something for everyone. All we needed to pull off a Thanksgiving dinner was there.

The home is exactly as pictured - clean and beautifully decorated.

The Grills are accommodating and thoughtful - the personalized welcome basket for the children was a big hit. One of our best memories will be the Great Egret roost directly across from the house. Watching these magnificent birds fly in at sunset was awesome.

Our only problem was saying goodbye. Thank you Claudia and Claus for allowing us to create wonderful family memories.

A large lovely home in a beautiful location

We spent three days at Moorings in an unusually warm October. It is a lovely property and the island is a wonderful place to visit and relax

The property has everything you could ever need for a beach vacation

We really enjoyed the bay views from all levels of the house. The expanse of window allows for this great view even when inside the house. The bedroom balconies and windows allowed for bay view even from the bed. The firepit area was an awesome spot to watch the shore birds come in to roost for the night. Having beach chairs, sand toys, bikes, helmets, gas grill was all great so we didn't have to have those items take up space in our vehicle since we were traveling with a baby and had all those necessary items. The house was first class with beautiful flooring, chandeliers, fireplace, Wi-Fi, beverage area with wine openers and stoppers. We particularly liked the dining room with the expense bay view. We would definitely consider returning to this property for a future vacation and will recommend it to our friends. Another nice feature is all the bedrooms are like suites with ample private space for dressing rooms, makeup area, bathing, etc. We also liked the beach theme with the wall art and the personal touch of Moorings North with the coffee mugs and the welcome basket. The outdoor shower is a nice feature when returning from the beach. And the elevator is definitely a lifesaver. The location of this property allows for great walking to downtown and the shopping district, restaurants and parks.

Family Vacation for Pony Penning

What a wonderful spot for our every-other-year family vacation. Gorgeous, welcoming home! The en-suite rooms were perfect for our three daughters and their spouses and young kids. Our two older grandkids loved the third floor loft. Great place with mooring lines for our new boat and a quick ride to the pony swims which I last saw 53 years ago as a small child. A magical week!

Perfect Week at Moorings North

Excellent week. Short ride to the beach and short walk/bike ride to downtown restaurants. Short walk to the corner coffee shop. Very usable indoor and outdoor spaces. Our grandson learned to cast from the beautiful dock. The layout of the home provided ample space for our four families to gather and the bedroom/bathroom suites assured enough space for all to be comfortable. We greatly appreciated the elevator! We used the gas grill on several occasions and dined on the upper porch many times. Mother Nature provided exceptional weather and a nest full of baby birds to check on each day--a favorite activity of our 5-year-old grandson. Owners are very cooperative and hospitable!

A Gem on Chincoteague Island

Our week at Moorings North could not have been better. Not only is the setting of the house perfect, the décor is beautiful also. We were able to walk downtown or to the local ice cream shops. Sunsets are beautiful. The amenities of the house are fantastic. The Gril family did not forget anything to make our planning/arrival/stay/departure seamless. We felt it was a very “welcoming “house the minute we walked through the door. Simple things like night lights (beach theme, of course) in the bathrooms, small signs around the house to direct you to the right light switches or to tell you lights are on timers, and detergents in the kitchen and laundry room all made us feel at home. The baby gates and Pack and Play also made packing lighter and made us feel it is a house for all generations. Cleanliness is obviously very important because the house was spotless when we arrived. Moorings North is a gem on the island.

Our family loved this home. It was spacious, comfortable, well appointed and oh that view. I ( the family chef) was very pleased with the state-of-the-art kitchen...I didn't even need to get out the knives I brought along. The house was spotless when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again...and again. It was well worth the cost.

Bob from Pennsylvania, June 2017

Wonderful home!

We were traveling with three disabled adults, and this home was wonderful! A big kitchen, three king sized beds, a beautiful private outdoor space, an elevator....and all the toys you'll u need for a beach adventure on hand! This house has a wonderful fire pit, a fire place, bikes, beach chairs...and the views were amazing! My grandmother sat by the window every morning and watched the birds on the channel.

My only was listed as handicapped accessible and it WAS...except in the bathrooms. No handrails or grab bars had been installed, and though they do have an available shower chair my mother in law, aged 80 and cane dependent, was nervous about showering. Please look into this, and this house will be absolutely perfect!

Rooms with a view

Wonderful waterfront home in a charming little town. The house is elegant and top of the line in all of the décor and furnishings. A comfortable spot to sit and look out at the water and the birds. Close to everything in town. And lovely working with the owner, Claudia.

Kenny from Virginia, April 2017

Fabulous property

We were surprised and disappointed to arrive and find that this is a duplex property, and not a stand alone. Everything else, however, was absolutely delightful. We are two families, with two children per family (ages 10, 10, 9 and 5). The rooms were lovely, and the common space allowed for relaxed time together, with unbeatable views of the water and water fowl. The kitchen was very well stocked. We would absolutely return to this same property upon a repeat visit to Chincoteague Island.

Pamela from Virginia, April 2017

Perfect backdrop for an amazing family reunion

My family was getting together for the first time in many years and wanted to do something special, Moorings North provided that and more then I could have dreamed of. The view was spectacular, and the house well appointed and beautiful. There was plenty of room for 8 adults and a toddler, and the kitchen had just about everything you could possibly want. The hosts were very thoughtful and responsive, several times leading up to the visit I emailed questions and they always responded promptly with all the information and more! They even had fantastic suggestions for seafood spots so we could have a crab meal at the house one night. So much about the house was special, they have a telescope that absolutly enthralled several members of the family and bikes for others!! Great experience from booking on through!!!
